Do they work?

According to a study by Sharethrough, …readers are more likely to pay attention to marketing messages that resemble the content around them…study subjects were 25% more likely to look at a native ad than they were at a banner, and they looked at them 53% more frequently.

The results of this study make sense.  When advertising apears naturally, it creates a more enjoyable experience for readers while improving performance for advertisers.

And in case you’re wondering whether or not publishers like the idea of Native Ads on their sites… almost three quarters of publishers offer this type of advertising.

Advertisers supply the assets – image, copy, landing page – and Yahoo provides the targeting and the cross-screen placement. Advertisers then select their desired audiences through the platform – traditional demographics, user interests and the like, as well as first-party data brought in by the advertisers themselves – much in the same way as they’d do for any of the products under the umbrella of Yahoo Advertising.
